Cheddar French Toast with Fried Tomatoes

3 large eggs
2 cups half and half
Sea salt to taste
1-1/2 cups grated sharp Cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
8 thick slices Challah bread
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 garden beefstake tomato, thickly sliced
1 green tomato, thickly sliced
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Extra virgin olive oil (for frying the tomatoes)

With a fork, combine the eggs, half and half, and salt to taste in a baking dish. Add the Cheddar and thyme. Soak 2 of the bread slices in the batter for 1 or 2 minutes, turning them once. Meanwhile, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. With a spatula, lift the bread from the bowl allowing any excess batter to drip off, and transfer it to the skillet. Use a fork to transfer some of the cheese from the batter to the bread. Cook the bread until golden, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.

Wipe out the skillet with a paper towel. Repeat with the remaining butter, bread, and batter.

Season the tomatoes with salt and the pepper. Wipe out the skillet and return to medium heat. Heat the oil. Add the tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes per side. Serve alongside the French toast.
